"Laura James, golden haired nymph with guitar. Hummingbird spinning fragile tales of life and love" Mudkiss Fanzine

Laura’s music leans heavily on the poetic side of folk and her ‘haunting’ vocal coupled with her sensitivity for lyrics and melody is a captivating combination.

“Cumbria born Laura James oozes talent. From her sublime acoustic guitar playing and gentle angelic vocals to her beautifully innocent lyrics that only come along with youth. Each song tells a story and each word captures everybody there… this young singer/songwriter has the sweetest disposition on stage and you can't help but float along with her music. A truly captivating performance…” Music Mafia

“Lyrical Ability at it’s finest!” Peter Guy, Mersey Blogs.
